Rishabh Pant's remarkable comeback season in IPL 2024 has garnered him support from across India.

After a near 15-month hiatus due to a December 2022 accident, Pant's determination shone through despite Delhi Capitals' missed play-off chance.

In 13 games, the 26 year old emerged as DC's lone warrior, scoring a commendable 446 runs with an average of 40.54 and a blistering strike rate of 155.40. Three well-constructed fifties and a top score of 88 not out showcased his fighting spirit.

'Personally, it was fantastic to come back on the field. The kind of support I got from the whole of India was heartening to see. It was a long time to wait,' Pant said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Tuesday's win against K L Rahul's Lucknow Super Giants, by 19 runs, at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi served as a fitting farewell to their home crowd.

Pant and the DC team took a lap of honour around the stadium to thank fans after their final home match of the season.

Players tossed a few jerseys into the stands, a token of appreciation for the unwavering support throughout IPL 2024.
